Hi! My name is April Plank with Yoga Etc.
Studio on behalf of Expert Village. In this clip, we will be doing the roll back on the
short box. So I am going to have Helen go ahead and start with this. She is going to
reach her arms in front of her. The shoulders are going to stay relaxed. She will take an
inhale sitting tall through the spine. On the exhale, she will roll herself back drawing
the ribs and hips together. Good. She did put a slight squeeze on that ring to help
engage through the pex muscles as well. She will inhale and hold and as she exhales, she
will roll herself one vertebrae at a time back up to the start and again inhale, exhale
tucking the tail bone drawing the ribs and hips together, inhaling staying relaxed in
the shoulders and exhale rolling all the way back up. Good. Two more times. Inhaling and
exhaling rolling back so really a lot of strength here especially in the low belly. Inhale and
squeeze for more arm strength and exhale rolling back up and this will be our last time. Inhale
and exhale rolling back, engaging those abdominals, working that core strength, inhale and holding
and squeezing and exhale rolling back up to the sitting bones in a start position. Nice
work and that was the roll back on the box of the Pilates Reformer.
